|My watercolor class yesterday at NBG.|
I was tickled NBG was also having an Wildlife Class/Seminar too at the same time. Betty Ann came and got us and we enjoyed seeing a Red Tailed Hawk released!!!(One of us had tears in our eyes, most were snapping photos and holding our hearts.. It was amazing!
Then Elizabeth called me out into the hall and there was a live Barred Owl. You know how much I love owls and nature. Some of us gathered around and I touched it. Oh how soft. The eyes when he( Beauregard) closed them were covered in velvet...or so it appeared !!! We got to see a live Red Tailed Hawk.. and I touched his breast.. so soft. Talons of immense strength.. I was in heaven. If you would like to look up the organization--one of them. The one sharing with us was --Sacred Friends, Inc. www.sacredfriend.org , Katherine was the dear lady who shared Beauregard with us.
I will definitely be painting him. It is always inspiring to go to Norfolk Botanical Garden.
